Is anyone able to help me with specific virus removal as I have already encountered some big issues?


I ran the file on the websites in the pinned thread and clearly, it shows malware within the file. I downloaded it from a ‘misleading’ website that I thought was genuine when installing plugins for adobe applications and ran a ‘setup.exe’ file pretty foolishly and that is the one that is being scanned in the links above.

If anyone can inform me of what kind of compromise has occured and the severity as well as the best way to go about fixing it that would be extremely helpful. I have already had the file scanned and removed by malwarebytes but no generic scan picked up on any virus until I specifically scanned the setup.exe file.

I am concerned the virus has compromised my entire system as shortly after install (a day or so later) I had unauthorised transactions occur on my discord account which I am certain has not been compromised in any other way (like through phishing links or linking it to other websites). Thank you if you are able to help.

    try run a scan with hitman pro and install a decent AV such as bitdefender/kaspersky and see what they report
